Tuesday Morning Man: Andy Roddick!

Andy Roddick is getting the spotlight today because this week it was announced that he will be inducted into the International Tennis Hall of Fame.

The 2003 US Open champion and world number one retired five years ago and was chosen during his first year of eligibility.

He finished in the top 10 for nine straight years from 2002 to 2010 and led the United States Davis Cup team for most of his career, winning the trophy in 2007.

Andy, a three-time Wimbledon finalist, didn’t feel that he was a shoo-in.

“It’s really, really hard for me to look at myself in the context of the people that are in the Hall of Fame; I feel like they are Michael and I’m Tito,” Roddick said, referring to the singer Michael Jackson and one of his older brothers.

“Tito got to play some pretty cool venues, too, but it’s weird for me.”

“I’m not Serena (Williams). I’m not Roger (Federer). I’m not one of those people where it’s almost a formality. I didn’t think it was a foregone conclusion.”

Congrats to Andy who was, obviously, one of my major tennis crushes.
